    I bought a Japanese one for £200 with a game from:

    www.ivaleo.co.uk

    if you order from them I would email them to see if they have stock as they were out of stock when I ordered, they offered a full refund immediately but I decided to wait 3 days until they had some.

    No power adapter was included but they are easy to get hold of from Argos (982/7590 £4.49)

    I got mine off eBay. Get it off a trusted seller. I paid just 220 euro (about 170sterling) for mine.

    As for power adapters, you can use the PS2 or PSOne plug just as easily.

    I would recommend www.movietyme.com, for £189.99/£199.99 you get a US PSP with your choice of game delivered from inside the UK (no customs worries)

    As for the power cable, I just use the one from my PS2, no point in spending more money for an adapter when its not needed.

    If you live in london i'm sure games exchange do it and the other electrical shops on tottenham court road otherwise i have definitely seen psp for £220 in Awesome Games in Wood green shopping centre. This way you dont have to wait for delivery, oh they had a handful of games as well.

    The cable is a USB mini b connection I believe. I know that the one I got with my Creative Zen and my Sony Mini Disc worked with the PSP. That said, I haven't seen them being sold in shops. Again, ebay is your answer for that one.

    Hi all,

    I ordered my PSP from Movietyme on Monday morning and received yesterday (Wednesday) by Royal Mail Special Delivery (Even though I didn't pay for Sp. Delivery!!! - Cheers Movietyme!!!!)

    No customs charges as it was posted out from the UK.

    I've only just had a chance to play with it and ooh - it's a great piece of kit.

    Would definitely use Movietyme for future purchases (and no, I don't work for them!).

    Great service, great product - what more can I say?

    Cheers,

    Kubrick. :thumbsup:

    Just waiting for more Mercury to arrive (be around Monday of next week).

    We can ship to a different address but need card holders on the order too to verify the card.

    Is this on all products? Their FAQ states the following:

    Q: Are shipments Liable To Tax & Duty?
    A: Yes as a rule all items over £18 in value are liable for Customs Tax & Duty.
    Customers of this site are responsible for paying local countries import taxes / duty and are none refundable by us.

    Yes, but their PSP units are shipped out from the UK so no customs charges or VAT are applicable.

    Cheers,

    Kubrick.

    Only if they have stock inside the UK, best to check their website for the Same Day Dispatch items.
    Also, they only stock US models.
